Scrambled omelet in case you’re tired of the usual one

Tonight I had the house to myself, and that called for a late dinner. Lately I’ve been writing down ideas for recipes that I want to try. This time I decided to make what I call a scrambled potato and apple omelet topped with sautéed spinach, orange zest and licorice powder, and it was really good. I had intended to “sprinkle” feta cheese over it, when it was finished cooking, but I forgot to buy it, so yeah… It was good anyway.

What you need for 1:

  • 2 big handful of fresh spinach (You can use frozen too, but I prefer my fresh vegetables)
  • 1-2 clove of garlic depending on the size
  • 2 potatoes
  • 1/2 apple
  • A bit of orange zest to sprinkle
  • Licorice powder (can be left out, but it’s wonderful)
  • 1 big egg
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • Butter for the pan

Start by peeling both potatoes and apple and thinly slice it afterwards. Butter and heat up a pan and roast the potatoes for about 5 minutes or until golden (take off when done). While roasting, wash spinach and heat up a saucepan with butter and garlic and then sauté the spinach. Mix egg, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl on the side. Then place both apples and potatoes in the pan and pour over the egg batter. Fry on high heat for 2-3 minutes before lowering the heat, so the egg won’t burn. Then you start “scrambling” – turn the omelet in several pieces, so it all mixed. When it’s done cooking place the omelet on a place and top with the spinach, orange zest and just a little bit of licorice powder as well as feta cheese, if you remembered it at the store haha 🙂

Rebooting or just enjoying the comfort of juicing

Lately I’ve been reading a lot about rebooting with a three to five day juice cleanse. As I’ve said before, I do not support diets for weight loss, but I’m definitely hooked on the idea of rebooting yourself – not just the body, but the mind as well. Up until 2 weeks ago, I had never actually used a juicer, so I did not know if I’d be able to live on vegetable juices – I mean a juiced carrot, celery or spinach seems horrible to me, but that was until I started juicing. Now I’m not yet on a juice cleanse, but I am drinking one juice per day, and it is magnificent. Knowing that what you’re drinking is a big glass with nothing but vitamins, that’s just awesome. Therefore I wanted to share some pictures and few recipes for some of the juices I’ve made until now. Of course you do need a juicer, so if you don’t have one, but you have the money for it – I recommend you go buy one. It’s not just a buy, you know – it’s an investment.

For the first one you juice two apples, two carrots, and 1 inch (2.5 cm) of ginger
(1 glass)

For the second (the green) you juice 1 cucumber, 2 lemons, 2 apples, 2 sticks of celery, 1 and a half handfuls of spinach, and 2 slices of melon.
(2 glasses)

For the third (orange/red seen from the top) you juice 2-3 carrots, 1 apple, 1 inch (2.5 cm) of ginger, and some watermelon – you decide how much.
(1 glass)

For the fourth and the last you juice 4-6 oranges depending on the amount of juice and about a quarter of a watermelon.

I hope y’all start juicing soon – it really is a pleasure.

Salmon on creamcooked leeks and a sauce of apple/horse radish

Dear foodlovers,
I am so sorry that we haven’t had time to post in the past month or so. But as I promised earlier on, I was gonna give you the full course recipe for my dinner party. The last course missing is also the main course, so here we go. I decided to make a sort of comfort plate of fish and spinach pasta. It turned out great and everyone loved it.

What you need:

  • Lemon juice
  • Parsley
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 dl heavy cream (0.9 cups)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2-3 leeks
  • 2 apples
  • Oil or butter for frying
  • 1 dl chicken stock (possibly water and bouillon cube) (0.45 cup)
  • Freshly scraped horse radish
  • 4 pieces of salmon – you decide the size, but I would say approximately 600 grams/21.2 oz

Fish preparations:
Spice the pieces of fish with salt and pepper and fry them in half oil/half butter on the skin side for 5-7 minutes. Then fry them shortly on the other side. If unsure that its finished, maybe cut up one piece to make sure.

Creamcooked leeks with a sauce of apples and horse radish:
Cut the leeks into pieces and blanch them for one minute in lightly salted water. Peel the onion and apples, cut them into pieces and fry them in a bit of oil for two minutes. The cream and chicken stock is then poured over and the leeks are put down in the sauce. Spice it up with horse radish, lemon juice as well as salt and pepper.

Sprinkle a bit of parsley over the finished result and serve with pasta of any kind – I used spinach pasta.

Thats it for now, but we have a great snack and NY food pictures coming up 🙂
Until next time – enjoy November as its not there much longer (YAY christmas!!!!)

When you’re sick and just need vitamins!

So we all know how it is to be sick and feeling like crap. Right now – thats me! Or at least it was for a couple of days. When I’m sick, I always crave unhealthy food, but for once I thought I needed more vitamins than chocolate.

So I decided to make a smoothie with carrots, apples and some low-fat vanilla yoghurt. And trust me, when I say that it is just as easy to make as it sounds.

Just peel 3 carrots and an apple. Cut it out in smaller pieces and put it in a blender along with a bit of low fat vanilla yoghurt. The amount of yoghurt depends on how you want your smoothie. I added a bit of apple juice as well, because my blender is old and it doesn’t work that well without liquid. And well woopsi – you have one delicious smoothie in front of you.

Hopefully you aren’t sick like I am, but it’s still good!

Until next time – enjoy the fruits of the season!
